Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of chances before
But I ain't gonna give anymore
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
'Cause part of me knows what you're thinkin'

Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

Chorus:
I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see anymore
To know that
I can read your mind,
(Looking at you)
I can read your mind
(Looking at you)
I can read your mind
(Looking at you)
I can read your mind

Don't leave false illusions behind
Don't cry I ain't changing my mind
So find another fool like before
'Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while all of the signs are deceiving

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see anymore
To know that
I can read your mind,
(Looking at you)
I can read your mind
(Looking at you)
I can read your mind
(Looking at you)
I can read your mind

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see anymore
To know that
I can read your mind,
(Looking at you)
I can read your mind
(Looking at you)
I can read your mind
(Looking at you)
I can read your mind

    My InterpretationI don't know if it counts as "the" meaning of the song, but for me it seems most complete with both the lyrics and the "big brother" theme of the album, to consider the following interpretation:

    It is about a relationship to me, but the context changed from pursuing romance to a game of control of Orwellian intensity. The conflict--lies, confusion, divergent expectations--drove one party to constantly check up on the person, to find out secrets, to learn when they are lying... in order to overcome their insecurities with massive information, so much knowledge they feel the person cannot successfully conceal anything from them anymore. Almost a god-like feeling, hence the "eye in the sky", "maker of rules".

    Now that they feel they have all the cards, it seems like a hollow victory because having no secrets, no mystery destroyed the romance. And though they partly brought the situation on themselves, they feel betrayed and have bitterly split from their former love.
